The poll panel announced the date a few minutes later at a press conference.

Amit Malviya, in his defence, claimed in a tweet that he found out about the polling dates through a media channel.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) this morning announced that the highly anticipated Assembly Elections in Karnataka will be held in a single phase on May 12. The social media heads of both national parties announced that results of the Karnataka assembly polls will be declared on May 18, while the EC announced that the results will be declared on May 15. The BJP delegation, led by Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, met Chief Election Commissioner O P Rawat, who termed the leak as "very serious".

The Commission said it has immediately directed that the matter be probed and necessary and effective action be taken.

Congress leaders Randeep Singh Surjewala, Manish Tewari and Jyotiraditya Scindia said in tweets that the declaration of the date by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) functionary is unprecedented and imperils democracy.

The Model Code of Conduct has also come into effect with the announcement of the poll schedule. The results will be announced on May 15.

The Karnataka Assembly elections in 2013 had witnessed the Congress storming to power with 122 seats after occupying the Opposition benches for seven years, landing a huge blow for the BJP, which was battling a fractious split and corruption charges. Also, the last wake up call for Hindus before the Jihadi and missionary forces take over the state. andVote for BJP overwhelming and kick out the traitor Congress.

"Shocking that BJP IT cell knew Karnataka elections 2018 dates before official Election Commission announcement".

The Karnataka state Assembly polls may also have bearing on the 2019 Lok Sabha election.

Though Malviya was right about the polling date, he missed the mark regarding the counting date.

The court said the disqualification was in violation of the "principle of natural justice" and asked the EC to hold a fresh hearing and also to determine the meaning of the expression of office of profit.

Earlier this month, Congress President Rahul Gandhi, too, was seen visiting temples in the state along with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.
